Civil Hospital doctor who tested positive for corona recovers

Gurgaon: Three more patients admitted to Medanta The Medicity after they contracted Covid-19 fully recovered and were discharged on Wednesday, a health department release said.
One of the patients is a doctor working with Civil Hospital and lives in Sector 9A. She tested positive on March 22. She got infected after coming in contact with Covid-19 positive patients. The second patient is a 65-year-old woman and the grandmother of the 22-year-old woman who was found to be positive for novel coronavirus upon her arrival from London. She is a resident of Palam Vihar. The third patient is another member of the family — a 45-year-old man — who is the father of the 22-year-old woman. Earlier, she and her 16-year-old brother were discharged from the hospital.
So far, of the 10 Covid-19 positive patients in Gurgaon, nine have turned negative. Most of these nine patients have been discharged.
“This is a big achievement. We have not received any new case so far. We are collecting samples every day as we had done earlier. The model of social distancing and quarantine measures we have been following is working well. Scrutiny of secondary contacts of Covid-19 patients helped us curb community transmission,” said, JS Puniya, CMO.
The only patient in Gurgaon who is positive at present is a 50-year-old woman, a resident of Sushant Lok-1. She had returned from London and was tested positive on March 21. “She is at a private hospital,” Puniya said.
As most patients are young, they recovered quickly,” said Sushila Katariya, the director and head of the department of internal medicine at Medanta hospital.
The health department on Wednesday said the suspected patients from Pataudi and Nuh they had received on Tuesday are under quarantine and their test reports are awaited.
